A Tampa woman wants to get medical marijuana to save her 2-year-old daughter's life.
Although she's still getting her cancer-stricken daughter conventional treatment, such as radiation therapy, Moriah Barnhart says that's not enough.
And she wants options other than just chemotherapy. Medical marijuana, Barnhart says, would work better than chemotherapy, particularly considering chemo's long-term effects.
As it is, medical marijuana remains illegal in Florida.
Back in May, Barnhart was told by doctors that her daughter, Dahlia, had a cancerous tumor in her brain. Barnhart took Dahlia to five hospitals and was told each time that the little girl had stage-two cancer.
She eventually traveled to Tennessee to take Dahlia to St. Jude's Hospital.
There she was told that the cancer had been more aggressive than doctors first thought.
Dahlia is currently undergoing chemotherapy, and Barnhart is in no way complaining. The therapy has, so far, kept her little girl alive and fighting.
But after doing research on medical marijuana, she desperately wants to treat little Dahlia with it.
Indeed, studies show that cannabis can treat and, in many cases, might even cure cancer.
Florida residents have overwhelmingly supported the idea of the state adopting the same laws as a place like Colorado, to make marijuana legal for medical purposes.
Instead, the state continues to raid the homes of folks who use it to treat debilitating diseases, while our lawmakers fight for the right for young people to be able to buy guns and other ridiculously arbitrary laws.
Because keeping old people from gambling and allowing kids to buy a gun is vastly more important.
"From that moment that they came back and said she had a mass in her brain, from the day forward, your entire life, everything your life meant, all of your goals and aspirations, your education, your income, all of that becomes completely meaningless," Barnhart told wfla.com.
For now, Barnhart is sending a petition to the Obama administration asking for help.
And then, wait.
While Dahilia keeps up her fight and Florida lawmakers keep doing whatever it is that they do.
